All Star Press is an all-in-one Chicago art gallery, retail space and print studio based out of the Logan Square neighborhood. They focus on limited edition artist prints from all over the world, with an emphasis on sports, Chicago culture, film, and concert posters.
Their mission is to broaden the relationship and conversation that they share with sports fans and artists extensively throughout Chicago allowing their space to not only be culturally significant, but influential in the Chicago art scene.
All Star Press brings a very special feature to next week’s Fair.
Their live screen printing studio will give an inside look at the messy, chaotic process of printmaking, contrasted with the beautiful, error free final prints that the process makes possible.
Plus, they will present three must-have Chicago based artists, who have created brand new paintings that have been deconstructed and turned into a series of totally unique monoprints exclusively for the Fair.
Meet Griffin Goodman, Kelly Knaga and Joseph Perez “Sentrock”. Their prints will have their first release at the Fair and are strictly limited so be sure to get in early to your sessions to take one of these unique works home.
MEET THE ARTISTS
Joseph, best known as “Sentrock” is a self taught street artist. Sentrock witnessed street art as a form of expression, birthing his interest to pick a spray can and continue his artistic voice. His early works were developed from graffiti writing in Mexican-American neighborhoods.
Sentrock’s signature bird-mask over a human figure has become his most recognizable declaration. Sentrock describes his bird-mask as analogous to humanity: a person who is able to find or escape to their freedom by placing them in a different reality.
Griffin lives and works in Chicago, IL. He received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2019 and a BFA from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2017.
He has recently had a solo show with Andrew Rafazc Gallery (Chicago, IL) and recent group exhibitions at the Sarasota Art Center (Sarasota, FL), Jaw Gallery (Yamaguchi, Japan), and the Elmhurst Art Museum (Chicago, IL).
